They are the kindest people, making sure to take note of everything I say about my car. My car has been having the same issue for the longest time and they finally caught what was wrong with it and fixed it! 5 stars from this loyal customer! :)

A little disappointed, we had to return our vehicle for further problems. It is so inconvenient when one car is down and we have 3 drivers. However, the problem was resolved and we were appreciative for the way they took ownership and fixed the problem. We all have tight schedules these days, we value quality control and it is very important to us. Thanks for taking care of us.

This was our first experience with Ulmer’s Auto Care at their Anderson Township location. Our friends had been dealing with them for years. Anyway, I was pleasantly greeted as soon as I entered the office and asked about my reason for my visit. I explained my situation: Our vehicle just serviced by Beechmont Toyota, which left me with doubts about that some service points had been listed as in good condition, a specific area of concern ended to be “watched and rechecked at next servicing”. That particular area sounded serious to me, so I stopped at Firestone Auto Care to have them check out what had been described as a problem. Per Firestone there was no “problem” detected in the rear suspension or wheel/brake/tire area, and at this time I saw the “rear end” area of my vehicle. I learned the “rear end” of my vehicle was not what is found on front wheel drive vehicles. There is no drive shaft from the engine to a bell housing axle as in rear wheel drive cars. At this point I opted to take our vehicle to Ulmer’s Auto Care for them to give our vehicle a complete check over. Everyone at Ulmer’s greeted me and listened to “my story and concerns”, and I was able to leave my vehicle immediately for them to perform my requested service. I received a call shortly afterward, was provided with a list of items needing to be repaired/replaced and a total cost. The concern “the rear axle assembly needing to be followed” as described by Beechmont Toyota was not only not needed, there is no such assembly existing on our vehicle. I was explained in detail the repairs needed; some of which were supposedly checked by and reflected as in good working order by Beechmont Toyota; and all could be performed and my vehicle available the same day. There was one condition that was related to after market lowering springs that was tested and retested over two days that was not a problem causing danger, just a nuisance noise situation, but diagnosing this did not result in any additional cost; which was greatly appreciated by us.A convenient and appreciated service also provided by Ulmer’s is courtesy service to pickup customers or drop off of customers by their courtesy van.I can only say that Ulmer’s provided personal services above and beyond what we have experienced with Beechmont Toyota with our current Scion and previous Scion vehicles, or Honda East with our previous vehicle.We will be using Ulmer’s for all our future servicing needs on our Scion XB vehicle.The five star review is the best under this scoring system, but were it possible I would add five more stars to the score. The people are all A++++++ and work the same.

The team at Ulmer's worked very hard to get my job done right, although they had to spend a lot of time and effort to do so as my car wasn't very cooperative, lol. Great service, great people to work with !After three visits, I can say Ulmer's is my new favorite place to go when I need anything car related. Great, dependable service!!!

Ulmers was incredible - I was in a car accident hit by a drunk driver (I was a passenger in a cab) but I needed to get my car serviced during my recovery. They completed repairs ahead of schedule and brought a get well card signed by everyone at the shop. Prices were reasonable and the work was excellent

I've been a customer at Ulmer's for years and they have serviced several of my cars. A recent experience was outstanding and demonstrated the extent of their honesty and integrity.I took one of my used vehicles for service, to have them make sure it is safe for my adult children to drive on a trip. They serviced the brakes, did a follow up test drive, but then took the brakes back apart when they weren’t satisfied with the outcome of the repair. Steve had their senior mechanic got involved and they found a partially clogged brake line that they repaired under warranty.Dependable, high quality repairs, excellent customer service, and a business that backs up their work - Thank you, Steve, Wesley, and Ulmers!!

Have always found Ulmer’s to be friendly, helpful, and above all very professional and competent.I often recommend them to friends and family.Brought my ‘09 Forester in for extensive work starting with a thorough check-up and was happy to later take delivery of a newly happy Subie.Rear wheel bearings, steering gear, AC and cooling system work—they do it all!The “helpful” part includes quick curbside analysis when called for—something the dealer won’t do.

We have used Ulmer's Auto for many years (35+) -- back to when they only had one shop on Salem Rd. They are honest, efficient, effective, knowledgeable and friendly. Brian does take after his father which is very positive and therefore is a very good owner. His staff is first class and they have super memories, of course, their computer systems helps them.

I have been a customer of Ulmer's for 28 years, bringing more than a dozen vehicles in over that time. Their work has always been of the highest quality and their customer service is excellent. Over the years, I've gotten into a few jams and they were very generous in their efforts helping me through them. Most recently, a service station pumped gas that was 70% water into my son's Camaro. Ulmer's found the problem, found other customers also affected, provided full documentation, including photos, to assist customers in getting damages paid. And, in fact, the service station is paying all costs to the affected customers. I have every confidence when I drop a car off to Ulmer's and they have never let me down.

10/10. I showed up there last week right at closing time, a nail in my tire, and 2 little kids in the backseat. I had early meetings and would have likely missed them with a flat but for Ulmer's. They took their time to throw on the spare tire when many places could've turned me away. Patched my tire and put it back on this week. Would recommend them to anyone. Great people and business.

They always do a great job. I’ve taken my family’s cars to them for years, from ancient Volvo wagons to equally an ancient BMW convertible, likely something like 10 cars of various makes and models, and I’ve been quite happy with their service. Prices are fair, and work is always completed in a timely manner. The only thing is it’s best to book at least a week before you need scheduled service because they are very busy.

Ulmer's is one of the very few Auto care businesses I've done business with that conducts itself with integrity and stands behind the services it provides. I've been a customer of theirs for over 20 years and they consistently outshine the competition because they value their customers and stand behind their work. I recommend you give them a chance to prove it to you by scheduling your next service appointment today.

Where do I even begin?! I’ve been loyal for almost 20 years to a mechanic on the west side. However after moving to Anderson, it just wasn’t working to keep driving so far. A neighbor referred us and knowing I was so nervous promised that they were trustworthy and I would love as much as our old place. He was RIGHT! I already had the list of items to be taken care of the first time I took to Ulmers. The diagnostic list they gave me matched perfectly. The pricing was almost exactly the same. The convenience of being so close to home, the customer service being updated every step of the way and work performed couldn’t be beat. I was very hesitant to switch but now am happy to say that I’ve found someone we trust just as much. We recently needed significant work done again and once again, I was more than impressed start to finish. Cannot say enough about this place. Don’t overthink it, just call!
